Quick thoughts

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Scared of new stuff, I am. Leaving soon for D.C., I am.

"I want a handbook" as to what The Rules are. I said that to Dad several times over the course of arguing with him in the last decade. I was a legal-rational kid even at the age of ten.

I had to use Windows for the past two weeks, and I really, really hated it.
